PDF vintage pattern instant download.

Pattern to knit this gorgeous simple poncho plus an extra PDF with charts of needle and yarn equivalents and additional information for international buyers.

Finished size: width 40 inches length 54 1/2 inches

Recommended yarn: aran or worsted ~ you will need 20 x 50gm balls.

Recommended needles: one pair of old UK no. 5 (5.5mm / USA size 8) plus circular needles: old UK sizes 5 and 6 (5mm and 5.5mm / USA sizes 7 and 8).

PLEASE READ: I rescued this pattern from a tatty old magazine ~ it's not a straight scan of the old pattern as it was in a bad way ~ I have recreated it in a new format which is much easier to read.

This is a vintage UK knitting pattern, but I have included an extra PDF with hints, tips, charts and abbreviations to help international buyers translate UK terminology with alternate yarn and needle equivalents.

****** With this purchase you will be downloading two pdfs******

From The Vintage Workbox ~ coaxing vintage patterns out of retirement!

Please be aware that I haven't personally tried and tested all the patterns I have in my shop and I'm not the original designer. If you have any difficulty I will do my best to assist.

This is a pdf download of a rare and out of print knitting pattern - you are buying a pdf download of a knitting pattern NOT the physical pattern or the finished garment.

Retro clothes are hugely popular so if you're an avid knitter (or know someone who is) you can now reproduce some of these classic looks for a fraction of the retail or vintage price.

Thanks so much. Love the rewrite. I've begun the knit, but am only about 6 inches into it. Seems very straight forward.

Additional policies

I have a huge collection of vintage and retro knitting and crochet patterns that are all out of print and are no longer the subject of copyright laws.

When purchasing a vintage pattern please be aware that terminology does change over time and some patterns may be more complicated than others. I haven't personally tried and tested all of the patterns myself and some may need a little research as terms for some techniques can get a bit lost in translation.

As many of these are older patterns the yarn required may be discontinued and a substitute will be needed.

The majority of my patterns are British in origin and are aimed at the UK market ~ for other countries some terms may differ.

Retro clothes are hugely popular and if you're an avid knitter/crocheter (or know someone who is) you can re-create some classic designs for a fraction of the vintage or high street price.

All the patterns I have listed are PDF digital downloads, not physical patterns sent through the post.

If you have any doubts, questions or queries please do convo me as I'm here to help.

Please note: I do not sell printed paper copies of my patterns.
